About us

For nearly two decades RKO Blues Band has been filling rooms with a tasteful, soulful and driving mix of blues, R&B, jazz, rock and standards, applying fervent improvisations, rhythmic textures and endearing charm. Founding RKO members Kent Overaker and Victor Kinchion continue to perform with a supporting cast of talented musicians. Currently, Monty Harrison provides guitar, harmonica and vocal arangements, bringing his jazz oriented roots style into the forefront of this bluesy line-up. Lisa Beaudoin-Moser adds vocals and stirs in her New Orleans background to this pot of bluesy gumbo. The absolute happiest blues/funk bassist, Brent Garrett, rounds out the rhythm section. Recent addition to the band is keyboard and saxophone player, Dan Mobley.

RKO is a proud member of the Wichita Blues Society and two-time participants in the International Blues Challenge in Memphis.
